Lesson 9 Continued… Objectives: SWBAT read out-loud fluently and with expression. Also, we are going to review some grammar.
Grammar Some clarifications: In every sentence, there is a main verb. The main verb of a sentence is either a ________linking verb_____________ or an _________action verb________________. In most cases, the main verb is the last verb in the sentence. However, there are sentence structures where this is not the case. Helping verbs do the following: 1. They usually come before the main verb. 2. If there are helping verbs in a sentence, they tell you the tense of the verb.
Grammar Article: The, a, an Adjectives: modify nouns Adverbs: a lot of the times, these end in –ly. Adverbs modify verbs, adjectives, and other adverbs. Note: Not and never are ALWAYS adverbs.
Example 1 The = article Furry = adjective Cat = common noun Is = linking verb Extremely = adverb Angry = adjective Simple Subject = cat Simple Predicate = is
Example 2 The = article Black = adjective Cat = common noun Had = helping verb Been = helping verb Running = action verb; past perfect continuous Very = adverb Quickly = adverb Simple Subject = cat Simple Predicate = had been running
Example 3 Elizabeth’s = proper possessive noun Friend = common noun Will = helping verb Be = linking verb Angry = adjective Simple Subject = friend Simple Predicate = will be
Example 4 Elizabeth’s = proper possessive noun Friend = common noun Will = helping verb Be = helping verb Eating = action verb; future continuous Simple subject = friend Simple predicate = will be eating
